Highlight and Save: Streamlining information gathering
Collabwriting simplifies the process of gathering information by allowing users to highlight important text from diverse web pages and PDFs effortlessly.
This is a game-changer for content marketers, lawyers, consultants, and student researchers, providing a seamless way to pinpoint and collect crucial information during online research.
Leave Comments: Fostering collaboration and contextual understanding
The ability to leave comments on highlighted sections takes collaboration to a new level.
Content marketers can use this feature to enhance team communication, lawyers can provide contextual insights into legal documents, and consultants can streamline collaboration by adding explanatory comments to reports.
This collaborative environment ensures that everyone involved in the research process is on the same page.
Add Topic Descriptions for easier organization
The new feature allows you to add a short description and explain what the topic is about when adding collaborators to your topics. Either that or making your topics more organized, Topic Descriptions are now just a click away.
Share and Collaborate: Breaking down silos
One of Collabwriting's standout features is its capability to create public links and grant specific permissions to users. This not only facilitates seamless sharing but also breaks down information silos. Team members can now collaborate effortlessly, regardless of their physical location, and contribute to the research process in real time.
Drag and Drop: Integrating with your workflow
The browser extension's compatibility with various apps, including Google Docs, Notion, Gmail, and Outlook, makes it an adaptable tool for users across different domains.
The drag-and-drop functionality ensures smooth integration with existing workflows, allowing users to transfer snippets with a click.
Searchable System: Effortless organization and retrieval
To tackle the issue of information overload, Collabwriting introduces a searchable system.
Within the dashboard, you can explore topics and snippets through a comprehensive search feature.
Located in the upper right corner, you'll find the Search Topic function. Simply click on it to start searching. Through the use of keywords, this search tool examines snippets' contents.
This refined search capability ensures that you easily pinpoint the desired information you seek, fostering efficient knowledge retrieval within your Collabwriting experience.
Users can organize their highlights into different Topics or Clusters, Add tags, and effortlessly retrieve them later. This feature is particularly beneficial for consultants and researchers who deal with a mass of information sources.
Traceable History: Accountability and reference
Collabwriting ensures that every action is saved, tracked, and organized, creating a traceable history for easy access and reference.
So, if you are a professional who needs to maintain a comprehensive record of work, ensuring accountability and facilitating future analysis, this feature is essential.
Import Highlights from Kindle
To start the import, all you have to do is go to your Kindle notes, open our extension, and click the "Import Highlights" button.
Once you have created highlights from an ebook, you can upload them to a Collabwriting topic. Once done, you'll be able to manage them in the same way as other highlights created through our extension. To easily access Kindle, we've created a shortcut inside the Topic settings tab of both the dashboard and the extension.
To locate the created highlights, you will need to download the Kindle Desktop app.
This allows you to have new possibilities for discussion and exploration.
Create Cluster: Group topics together
Clusters in Collabwriting serve the purpose of grouping related topics, allowing users to organize their research efficiently.
Whether adding new topics or rearranging existing ones, the process is seamless – users can effortlessly move topics from one cluster to another with a simple drag-and-drop action.
This feature simplifies organizing information, providing an intuitive way to structure research and insights.
Email notifications: Never miss an important feedback
We've been developing a system for Email Notifications and from now on your collaborators will get an email every time they are added to a Topic, Topic Cluster, or Workspace.
Simple Export: Turning insights into action
The simplicity of exporting highlights to PDFs, Notion, or Google Docs with a single click transforms insights into actionable outcomes.
This feature streamlines the transition from research to implementation, making Collabwriting an invaluable tool for professionals across various industries.
Save LinkedIn Posts & X posts in a click
